Maryland State Police to conduct sobriety checkpoint, increase patrols over Thanksgiving holiday


ROSEDALE, MD—The Maryland State Police will be stepping up enforcement and keeping an eye out for impaired drivers over Thanksgiving weekend.

From 10 p.m. on Wednesday night to 2 a.m. on Thursday morning, troopers from the Golden Ring Barrack will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint. The goal will be to locate impaired drivers and to promote public awareness of the dangers of impaired driving.

Enhanced enforcement efforts will continue over the weekend. Between Wednesday and Sunday, troopers from each of the 23 Maryland State Police barracks statewide will be focusing enforcement efforts on impaired driving, aggressive driving, speeding, distracted driving, and other violations that often contribute to highway tragedies, especially during holiday seasons.

Additional troopers will be working overtime assignments funded by highway safety grants from the Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration’s Highway Safety Office.
